I'm new to the the forum. I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer about 4 weeks ago before my 40th birthday. I'm 2 weeks post-op and am having alot of discomfort especially where the node biopsy was done. I have searched all over the internet for options to keep my clothing from rubbing and irritating the area. I know this is all normal, but I want to know has anyone found anything that you could put on the lymph node area to reduce the irritation? When I get home and take my bra off and throw on a t-shirt it's much better, but since I work in an office setting, that's not really an option. I go see the oncologist tomorrow and have already been told by my surgeon that radiation is coming so I'm afraid when I start radiation the irritation will just worse
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
